An impressive Georgian building with extensive sea views across Mounts Bay to St Michael’s Mount, Chapel House sits in a prominent position at the end of historic Chapel Street.
Built in 1790 to the highest standards of its day, the building has been home to several notable figures. Former inhabitants include Admiral Samuel Hood Linzee of HMS Temeraire, the ship made famous by JMW Turner’s iconic painting The Fighting Temeraire. It was also the base of the Carne family, an influential banking and mining dynasty instrumental in the development of Penzance during the 19th century through investments in the harbour and railways. Since then, Chapel House has been a family home, a shelter for WW2 evacuees, a lodging house, and from 1993 to 2011, the Penzance Arts Club.
